newRPL is more than 1.5X faster than the HP-Prime running my benchmark. Also 245X faster than a normal HP-50G.

I was not expecting performance would be that good!


I'd love to hear more about your benchmark. Can you show the code here?
I did some benchmarks in the past against the stock rom of the 50g, but never against the Prime, so I'm very interested to see which areas your benchmark impacts more (integers? reals? loops? variables?).

Here are some of my old results:
Old benchmark using mpdec library
Newer results with new decimal library

The program computes the quantity of primes numbers less than a given number. So it is mostly integer, with a few square-root and modulo division. It does not used any advanced functions (like ISPRIME or such). It is not the fastest algorithm to do that job but it is faster than checking the primality of every numbers. I have implemented the program on about 100 calculators/computers so I have a good database of results!

I will try to post the code tonight.
